With the most powerful magnification and largest objectives in the series, the Levenhuk 15x56 Monaco Binocular is built with the amateur astronomer in mind for wide-field astronomy including constellation and lunar observation, comet watching, and enjoying meteor showers or the Milky Way. It is engineered with large-diameter objective lenses, highly-reflective dielectric-coated BAK4 roof prisms, and anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, which work together to maximize light transmission through the optical path and ensure bright and clear, high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity across its entire wide field of view. To help minimize fatigue and vibrations, which can interfere with views, the Monaco is tripod mountable with an optional 1/4"-20 adapter.

Complementing the optical performance is a lightweight impact-resistant plastic chassis, that is also temperature-resistant to limit the expansion and contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optical components from moving out of alignment over time. The chassis is wrapped in a slip-resistant rubber armor with textured palm-pads to add grip security and stability in cold or wet weather - even when wearing gloves. Its optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Finally, a large center focusing wheel, ±4 dioptric correction, and twist-up eyecups enable precise focusing and eye relief for just about any user.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 15x magnification enables detailed observation of objects
  • Oversized 56mm objective lenses make them ideal for wide-field astronomical use
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum, and improve contrast and image brightness
  • 57-layer highly-reflective dielectric prism coatings improve internal reflectivity to maintain image brightness, and improve contrast and color rendition
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view helps produce an immersive observational experience
  • 210-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration
  • Large textured slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate even when wearing gloves
  • 59-76mm interpupillary distance adjustment range
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter enables fatigue-free long-duration viewing with limited vibrations
  • Comfortable 16mm eye relief reduces eye strain and makes long-duration glassing sessions comfortable
  • 3.7mm exit pupil
Optical Performance
  • Lightweight, and impact- and vibration-resistant plastic chassis
  • Chassis is also temperature-resistant to maintain a comfortable temperature in all weather, while resisting expansion and contraction common in metal chassis — that can cause the optics to move out of alignment over time, preventing the ability to achieve sharp focus
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes
  • Slip-resistant rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Textured palm-pads improve grip security
